Slip Trip Falls
over the weekend somehow, ive managed to injure my foot/ankle area but i have no idea how or what ive done. usually when i injure my ankle, theres an event (slip, trip, fall etc) leading up to it, but not this time! is it at all possible to sprain an ankle without a fall or anything? ive sprained ankles before, and it feels kinda similar, but i dont really wanna go to the doctor to get it checked out if it isnt necessary. so is it possible to injure an ankle without an event leading up to it at all?
yes. it sounds like you have a sprained ankle. you need to rest you ankle, make sure you hold down some ice on it, using slight pressure and make sure it’s elevated. this should allow it to heal quickly. If it is really painful take some paracetamol.
